The body is getting ready for primer, now I used some putty to remove mold lines from the body. I used MMD Green Putty this time. I must sand that thing smooth and then it is time to spray some primer on it. Then painting the body...

It has been sitting well over an year just collecting dust, so I finally thought I would pull it back on the bench. I worked with the wheels and tires a bit. Nothing special in the front tires, just kit decals added on them. Rear tires have painted lug nuts on Beadlocks and some black wash too.
My plan is to work on the chassis tomorrow, it shouldn't take too many days to get it on four wheels.
I hope it starts coming together as nicely as my '64 Belvedere in NASCARS Section.

Looking good! I have one on the shelf. Hope it turns out half as good.

The best reference picture I have.
It almost looks like the block is in fact orange in this picture

Brian: It's not hard to beat my build quality. I'm miles away from most of you guys in this forum, but I'm trying to improve.
Bill: Actually I saw that picture today when I came across your (?) WIP-thread of Chi Town Hustler on the ScaleAutoMagazine forum. The block sure looks orange.
Today I was going to start the fuel line plumbing, but actually spent the most of the day searching my Braided Line. Finally found it and started making those fittings and fuel lines, but actually I managed to get only one fuel line end finished. And then I worked with the rear axle a bit, painted it red and installed the Wheelie Bars. Still need to do some paint touchups and install the axle tomorrow once the paint on that Driveshaft is dry.
